ExxonMobile Ends 17 Year Drought On LGBT Protections
After seventeen years of failed attempts, ExxonMobile's board of directors has finally approved adding "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to ExxonMobile's list of protected classes.
Trust and believe, however, that the change doesn't come from a sincere change of heart.
President Obama's July 2014 announcement that federal contractors would have to make such additions and changes to corporate policies in order to do business with the federal government.
However, we get there, though, is still a win.
Expect several anti-gay pundits to moan and whine about this later today.
